  1. Bringing in a new actor makes sense. But that spot at the end, when Venom remembers…. when he plays the tape… it would have made more sense for David to have done those lines.

  2. I disagree with Kojima's decision to recast Snake not because I am a fan of Hayter or that I dislike Sutherland, but because he made the decision without consulting with the fans. David was the voice of the entire franchise and Kojima didnt care if fans were pissed.

    It's like that episode of the Simpsons when Homer invents a makeup shotgun and when Marge tells Homer "women won't like being shot in the face", Homer just responds, "women will like what I tell them to like". That's basically what kojima did. He has no appreciation or understanding of American culture and that was unforgivable. His decision had no consequence in Japan so it didn't matter much to him changing an iconic voice in a foreign release.

    When Coke released 'new Coke' and the people hated it, Coke made the wise decision to revert to the original formula. It's no surprise to me that the franchise went downhill with MGS5 when it was preluded by poor decisions like this.

  3. What Kiefer’s voice attain over David’s, it’s some kind of inner peace, stated in him, something that calms you, alongside fans a respect on himself.
    In opposite Hayter’s, that keeps you alert, concerned and feeling intense.

  4. The way he voiced Venom Snake makes Venom Snake stand out the rest of snakes cuz he's not the real big boss and his voice made fake snake sound both menacingly and cool

  5. Kiefer Sutherland = phantom snake
    David hayter = solid snake
    Two distinctly different people….one a clone of big boss and another who’s made into big boss..not a clone but something like hypnosis for phantom snake…I hate that most fans think solid snake and phantom snake are the same people when they aren’t lol…I mean one of them is designed to die at the age of 40…how can you mix them up? Lol

  6. His delivery of the line: "Kaz, I'm already a demon" is fucking excellent… He sounds so broken by his own moral ambiguity… Peace walker and the attack on MSF just pushed him over the edge so badly!

  7. Friends, no games could ever give you the satisfaction like JESUS. Repent of your vanities which is sin so that you can know the true meaning of life who is JESUS. If you continue to sin then you will go to the place of no holiness. The place of no holiness Is he'll. Repent and turn to JESUS
